“Just call me Eno,” Dorothy Eno Lomo-mainoo says when meeting someone. “It’s easier.”
This girl with a long last name was born and raised in Ghana and is very proud of her culture.
“I love Ghana, it is very relaxing and laid back,” Eno said. “The people in Ghana are extremely friendly…family is very important, and there is great respect for our elders.” It is no wonder that Eno has many friends at Waldorf and enjoys the one-on-one time with her professors.
“Waldorf has an extremely personable staff and they seem to care a lot about every student,” she said. “I have enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends at Waldorf. My American friends have made me grow as a person.”
Beyond the friendly atmosphere at Waldorf, the college price tag was also important to Eno in choosing her education. “Most things in Ghana are very expensive; the prices in this area are a lot cheaper than in Ghana . . . and most other colleges in the United States,” she said.
Eno graduates this spring with a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations and a minor in Criminal Justice and will continue on to graduate school. She chose her major and minor based on her respect for her father. “My father has been a great role model for me, and he is really a go-getter! My dad is involved in communications with visuals and television,” she said.
Eno plans to combine her strengths in writing and public speaking with her passion for social issues into a social media career.
“I want to help fix injustice in the world and I want to make a difference in the world in whatever I do,” she said. “Waldorf has opened my eyes to a new perspective of the world and has made me more open minded to other ways of life.”
